Visions & Views from a Visiting Voyeur

Loud mouth insight to the nothing and nowhere. Deep thoughts and questions that have no where else to go...



I saw this quote on my sparkpeople page and thought that it was quite thought provoking. It reminded me about those who choose to fight for causes that they believe in and the different ways they go about it.
I was actually talking about this with a friend today. We talked about Martin Luther King Jr, Midnight Oil, and the song "The Wall". Others like Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, and others give their life for their cause. Whether it be for civil rights, end to genocide, helping the hungry, or bringing to light oppression like that of indeginous group , these people came to an awareness of some sorts then took up the cause to do something about that awareness. Some made songs showing their protest, some went to prison, and some sat demanding in silence that something be done. Some choose to show it with violence and some with passive protest. There is a time that someone must stand against what is evil. Another thought:
Ecclesiastes 3 (NKJV)
1 To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
2 A time to be born, And a time to die;
A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;
3 A time to kill, And a time to heal;
A time to break down, And a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, And a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to gain, And a time to lose;
A time to keep, And a time to throw away;
7 A time to tear, And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;
8 A time to love, And a time to hate;
A time of war, And a time of peace.
Ta ta for now!
